What happened when Fischer sees Uncle Peter in the real world after the movie ends? Won't he tell Robert that the whole thing was bogus?

Remember that there was no attempt to convince Fischer that the dream levels were reality. In fact, Cobb tells Fischer he is dreaming when they are in the bar in the second level. The point was to plant the idea for (Robert) Fischer to break up his father Maurice's companies. Once he awoke this became his conviction and he will think it was his idea, rather than one planted (incepted) by Cobb at Mr. Saito's request.

Thinking those dream levels are real is hazardous, as Cobb displays throughout the movie. Forgetting you are dreaming puts you in the limbo state with no way out, unless someone convinces you it is unreal and you need to kill yourself to return to reality.
